Princess Yasmin of a small Silk Road country has been kidnapped. And the only way to save her is to have a thief steal her back. Lupin, Jigen, Goemon, & Fujiko(who passed on the offer) were assigned to rescue the princess in exchange for all you can eat curry. The princess in fact is held inside a guard fortress with automatic missiles. The man behind all this is an old villain. Someone who they believe is dead. Written by J LeGault
